In my opinion, we need to start bumping guys like LaRose, Tlusty and even Jokinen and (to a lesser extent) Ruutu down the depth chart to have any kind of real chance.

A top six of Staal, Staal, Skinner, Semin, Read, Ruutu goes a long way in accomplishing that. Keep in mind that I'm not "down" on Tlusty, LaRose, Jokinen and Ruutu, I just think that when you have a top six full of guys like that, you kinda suck. Even Tlusty's "breakout" year last year was underwhelming. He's a third-liner.
that's fair. I'd just think our defense is the weakest part of the team and needs an upgrade more than offense. I guess it's almost 6 in one, half dozen in another.
